Kent Falls State Park

On the second day of our Connecticut visit we travelled along picturesque Highway 7 toward our destination - Kent Falls State Park. Along the way we stopped to photograph a covered bridge that we happened upon unexpectedly.

Kent Falls, located in the northeastern section of the town of Kent, is a series of waterfalls on a mountain stream known as Falls Brook. The stream begins in the town of Warren, draining an area of six or seven square miles. It then flows west to the big fall where it plunges approximately 70 feet in a dramatic cascade.

Much of the limestone over which the brook flows has been carved into interesting shapes including numerous potholes of all sizes.

The fall colors were breathtaking! Click here to view a photo slide show of our second day's travels.

Looks like you got the slow water down. Where were the pumpkins? I don't remember seeing them along the way.

Hey Judy, the pumpkins were at the gas station just around the corner from the covered bridge. I shot the pumpkins when you & Jamie were in the restroom. The wagon of pumpkins was along the road in front of the little store.
